TASTING NOTES

Appearance: The 2017 Te Wahi Pinot Noir is dark and intense.

Aroma: The nose is dusky brambles, wild strawberries and hints of violets.

Taste: The palate is elegant, with damson and hedgerow fruit underpinned by dense tannins and vibrant freshness. This is a sophisticated Pinot Noir, with balance, clarity and a long, focused finish.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Te Wahi is particularly well-suited to pairing with wild game and duck, venison and wagyu beef

It’s a perfect addition to any winter banquet - try it with slow-roasted lamb shoulder and grilled root vegetables, or beef wellington and parsnip purée.

ORIGIN

Central Otago, New Zealand. Created in 1985 by David Hohnen, founder of the Cape Mentelle estate in Australia, the Cloudy Bay vineyards extend to the mouth of the eponymous bay in New Zealand. This landscape, nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Richmond Range mountains, is truly exceptional. Cloudy Bay, one of the first estates to be established in the Marlborough region, has made a huge contribution to making New Zealand one of the great names in “New World” wines. Expressive, refined and fruity, Cloudy Bay wines embody the spirit of the region.
